W 293X

F/Bb double horn, model „Custom“


The "Custom" models are typical Ricco Kühn horns. That means craftsmanship on the highest standard. All the tapered measure parts are calibrated accurately in wall thickness and diameter, bent with a special filling material and hammered by hand. You can feel this especial process when playing one of our instruments. Each idea of them was born during a successful work with professional musicians.


Beside fruitful dialogs with professional musicians the design of model W 293 X also received benefit from our experience in designing triple horns. W293 X is a very interesting alternative between the easy playable Knopf model and our triple horn which focuses and carries the sound in the hall very well. Next to valve position the great handling and the long leadpipe are causing this. It has a great sound adaptability and is very smooth in pp and focused in ff.
